Hello ! Today is the second week of the current Frilly and Funkie challenge. The lovely Jenny is our hostess and has chosen All Lined Up ! Here's what Jenny has to say:
For this one we need you need to think in straight lines! Be it rows or
columns, stripes or even grids make sure those vertical and/or
horizontal lines or rows of things are a clearly visible part of your
vintage or shabby chic projects (the edges don't count!)
When I read the challenge and saw the word 'grid' the first thing that popped into my head was crosswords ! So, I started by covering a small canvas with Ranger Texture paste then I cut some small squares from greyboard covered with white card. (I'd already worked out the words I was going to use !)
Once the paste was dry I then used Prima Art Alchemy acrylic paints, blending them with a baby wipe. I used Blackberry around the small squares to add some shading.
The letters were stamped using an old alphabet set onto small pieces of card that I'd wiped more Art Alchemy acrylic paint over.
I then arranged the embellishments, keeping them all quite small.
I decided not to paint the emsbellishments as I quite liked the metal against the paint backdrop.
I really like how this came together and love the texture of the paste !
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
